> I'm wondering if some of the folks from the warmer areas might give me an idea on winter dormancy of both JIs and SIBs.
> Do either of these retain green leaves all season? Through mild frosts? Hard frosts if following weather warms?


Both go completely dormant here in Texas as well.  They hung on quite a
while this year, through our first freeze (high 10's) and only went down
after the second freeze in December.
